Did Google, Others Touching MHVille Take Big Step Toward AntiTrust? Plus MH Market Updates

September 21st, 2018 No comments

CNNmoney9.21.2018ManufacturedHomeStocksMarketsReportsMHProNewsFacts are facts. The Washington Post (WaPo) is owned by Jeff Bezos, a pro-Obama, pro-Clinton Democratic supporter. In May 2016, as President Barack Obama’s presidency was moving towards its close, WaPo reported, “But we have not seen a major shift in [antitrust] enforcement under Obama.” Slate is another left leaning media source. In an article entitled, “Yes, there is an antitrust case against Amazon,” they said “The Obama administration probably wouldn’t have either, and neither would a [Secretary] Clinton…”  There are signals that President Trump will be different, and that will be a key part of our market focus this evening.

Today’s MH Market Spotlight Report –

GoogleOthersTouchingMHVilleTakeBigStepTowardAntiTrustPlusMHMarketUpdates

Google, AntiTrust, MHVille

Why does this report matter to MHVille?  Several reasons.  Let’s tick them off before diving in.

  • The issue of monopoly has arguably harmed manufactured housing for several years. That’s true from the tech giants, and from operations such as Warren Buffett led Berkshire Hathaway’s manufactured housing units.
  • Google, social media, and others in media have significant impact on how people learn about manufactured homes. Skewed results will impact perceptions, and thus sales.
  • Leaders from the tech giants are increasingly getting involved in affordable housing, because they are sitting on piles of cash.

With that brief backdrop, the news about Google could in hindsight prove to be part of the tipping point that will move the Trump Administration toward more antitrust action.

The news about this particular issue has been unevenly reported in the mainstream media, but leaked internal reports indicate that Google had discussions last year to modify search results involving the then proposed Trump travel ban.  That was part of a mosaic that includes allegations that Google had a cozy relationship with the Obama Administration.  In April of 2016, the Daily Mail reported that meetings between executives from Google at the White House “took place at least 427 times.”

So while this specific issue involved the travel ban, it should be seen as part of concerns over a broader pattern of pro-left wing, anti-Trump activity.

As a reminder that tees up the videos that follow, raw video from Google anti-Trump travel ban protests last year are in the video posted below.

 

Fox Business issued this report on this leaked memo.

 

Fox News’ Tucker Carlson issued this report.

 

Google denies that they ever initiated this discussion.  But isn’t the fact that there was a discussion about skewing search results over a political issue by one of the richest and most powerful companies in the world.

An August 2, 2018 report by the Guardian said that:Google [is] working on censored search engine’ for China…” If they are willing to do it for China, what’s to keep them from doing it in the U.S.?

Today’s MH Market Spotlight Report –

NewHighsTiredofWinningYetPlusMHMarketUpdatesManufacturedHousingIndustryDailyBusinessNewsMHProNews

Third party images are provided under fair use guidelines.

Even with a backdrop of trade tensions, the solid economy is winning out, and it drove the Dow Jones Industrial Average to return to the record high that it set back in Jan. 26, when it closed at 26,616.71. The Dow was up by triple digits on Thursday, eclipsing the January highs intra-day,” said Fox Business today.

  • Weekly jobless claims reported Thursday fell to a 49-year low.
  • the unemployment rate in the country is 3.9 percent,
  • and the U.S.’ revised GDP grew by 4.2 percent in the second quarter.

The discussion on Fox Business below has two different sides of the ‘trade skirmish’ issue.  Johnny Tamny’s views stands in contrast to what the Daily Business News published last night.

 

Our view, and that of a growing number of pundits, is that Payne Capital Management President Ryan Payne is closer to the mark.

The White House press room reminds MHProNews of this Washington newspaper’s recent analysis: “Democrats may be attacking President Trump’s trade actions with China, but the President’s latest move “is not rattling investors. That was the message from traders Tuesday, who sent stock averages soaring in the face of the latest round of American tariffs on Chinese imports and Beijing’s retaliatory response,” according to Liz Peek in The Hill.

One modest bone we want to pick with Fox Business. Several of their pundits have been saying for some time variations of this phrase: “The U.S. economy is firing on all cylinders…” The Daily Business News respectfully sees it somewhat differently.

The economy is poised to fire on all cylinders. Here’s what could still improve, and may, depending on the outcome of the midterms:

  • Tightening up the borders and then reforming immigration would be good for business and workers mid-to-long term,
  • pressing ahead on trade – the U.S. can win either way: either brining more business and jobs back to the U.S, or by reducing the trade imbalances,
  • moving ahead on infrastructure plans, so far, foiled by Democrats (who’ve kept the border/immigration deal from occurring too).
  • There’s more, but here’s what else could be huge. Reforming the budget/spending process. The president is a natural at budget cutting, and has shrunk the federal labor force quietly but steadily.  If a solid pro-Trump legislature comes in, expect the following:
  • 1) Major overhaul in the federal spending, and a move towards a balanced budget,
  • 2) legal/legislative action against monopolistic forces,
  • 3) making the tax cuts permeant, and other possible tax changes which could bring yet more foreign investment into the U.S., plus
  • 4) other surprises that are still ahead.

Mark your calendar.  Vote your wallet, get your circle to do the same come the midterms.  Do what scores of your peers do, and share these posts and the most popular emailed news in MHVille.

September 19th, 2018 No comments

CNNmoney9.19.2018ManufacturedHomeStocksMarketsReportsMHProNewsNew York City Mayor Michael Rubens Bloomberg owns Bloomberg News. Bloomberg has signaled an interest in running against President Donald J. Trump in 2020 as a Democratic Party candidate. So even that brief background is enough to say that Bloomberg News is not a pro-Trump media outlet.  With that brief insight, tonight’s market featured report is partially from Bloomberg, which reports that Jack Ma, China’s richest billionaire, has warned that a 20-year trade war” between the U.S. and China lies ahead.

Today’s MH Market Spotlight Report –

1MillionJobsPOOF!JackMaWarns20YearTradeWarPlusMHMarketUpdatesDailyBusinessNewsMHProNews600

promised in the U.S. are now off. Long-time Daily Business News on MHProNews readers may recall that Ma was one of those that made the trek to Trump Tower during the 2016 transition, promising jobs and investments in the U.S. That’s when the now revoked “1 million jobs” were promised.

Ma also said, per Bloomberg, that Alibaba and China must prepare for a “twenty year trade war”  with the U.S., one that will extend far beyond the Trump Administration.

Bloomberg reports that “China needs to strengthen its economy to deal with the conflict and shift trade relations from the U.S. to regions like Southeast Asia and Africa, Ma said during a speech at the company’s investor day conference in Hangzhou.”

Short term, business communities in China, U.S., Europe will all be in trouble,” Ma said, according to Bloomberg as he paced a stage in an open white dress shirt and punctuating his remarks with forceful jabs. “This thing will last long. If you want a short-term solution, there is no solution.”

Bloomberg’s commentary in the video below is interesting.

 

The Dow and the S&P rose again, despite reports like that that the trade war could get worse. Investors are beginning to adjust.

Editorially and logically, it made no sense for the United States to ship factories and jobs overseas for decade. But that was arguably particularly true with Communist China. Democratic and Republican administrations alike share the blame for a policy that saw more wealth go overseas, that funded a growing Chinese military, that caused the U.S. to have to spend ever more on the military too.  To pay for a growing federal debt, especially during Presidents George W. Bush and Barack H. Obama, the U.S. borrowing included China.

The Bloomberg analyst in the video suggests that President Trump may not be interested in making a trade deal.  He may be more interested in bringing those industries and jobs back to the U.S.  But either way – with an improved trade deal, or with more jobs and investments coming back to the U.S., the net result could be an ever rosier investment position for the U.S.

DonaldJTrumpTarrified!TweetDailyBusinessNewsManufacturedHousingIndustryMHProNews

The biggest caveat could be the 2018 midterms.  Readers are reminded that in 2016, MHProNews was one of the few that said for weeks pre-election that their were several reasons to believe that Donald J. Trump could win, despite the headlines from polls that widely proclaimed Secretary Hillary Clinton as winner. That same thing could happen in 2018, but it all depends on turn out.  Issues like the one below will be among the drivers. Stay tuned.

If Dems Seriously Want Senate, Texans Beto O’Rourke vs Ted Cruz Key Contest, Plus MH Market Updates

September 18th, 2018 No comments

CNNmoney9.18.2018ManufacturedHomeStocksMarketsReportsMHProNewsLet’s note that new tariffs between China and the U.S. today still witnessed a strong day on Wall Street. There’s growing signs that the market is ‘getting it’ on the “America First,” POTUS Trump trade battle. That said, let’s pivot to a key Senate contest. If Democrats are going to do more than talk about trying to capture the U.S. Senate in the upcoming midterms, they will have to go through Texas. Democrat Beto O’Rourke has had a ton of money pouring in. Will that make the difference? The latest will be our spotlight this evening.

Today’s MH Market Spotlight Report –

IfDemsSeriouslyWantSenateTexansBetoO'RourkeTedCruzKeyContestDailyBusinessNewsMHProNews

The Fort Worth, TX Star Telegram has two brief videos that give each of the two major Senate Candidates their respective say.

Beto O’Rourke

 

Ted Cruz

 

In spite of what Representative O’Rourke (D) said, the big money is actually more on his side of the aisle. Some of the world’s richest people are pro-Democratic, and those Democratic billionaires support that party with their wallets and with their considerable influence.

Much of the mainstream media has hyped this as a looming upset.  But the latest polling by Quinnipiac University, which routinely tilt’s left, shows the Democratic O’Rourke 9 points behind the incumbent Cruz.  Per Quinnipiac, Cruz gets the nod from 54 percent of likely voters, versus 45 percent for the Democratic challenger.

The Daily Business News on MHProNews has noted in editorial analysis that Democrats pledge to reverse tax cuts, and want to impeach the president, even though there is no material evidence after two years of investigations of alleged ‘collusion’ between his campaign and Russia. In the upcoming book, Fear, but reporter Bob Woodward, he shook the tree for any sign of any collusion.  He’s in that anti-Trump orbit, and said he found no evidence.  But as MHProNews has reported for over a year, the alleged ‘collusion’ is not a crime.

With 7 weeks until the midterms, it will be all about turnout.  The left is loud, and has a wide array of mainstream news and social media support that creates an echo chamber effect.  But with black, Hispanic, women, Asian unemployment at record low levels, and more blacks and Hispanics saying the favor President Trump and his policies, can it be as bad as some tilted polling suggests?

Record consumer and small business confidence should play to the President Trump’s favor, and he’s proven he has coattails for candidates he supports.

It will be an exciting ride in the next 7 weeks.  Don’t just stay tuned, share the information that will cause the undecided to get out and vote for more growth. See the related report, linked below.

HUGE Hurricane Florence Damage Estimates, Plus Manufactured Housing Industry Updates

September 17th, 2018 No comments

CNNmoney9.17.2018ManufacturedHomeStocksMarketsReportsMHProNewsCNBC reports that Moody Analytics has estimated the damage from Hurricane Florence in the tens of billions, and could go higher.  That’s bad, but an estimate from CoreLogic would make that estimate look puny. Frankly, news of China appeared to be the bigger market-mover today, but our focus this evening will be more on furious Florence, with its numerous MHVille connections, which will be our spotlight, below.

Today’s MH Market Spotlight Report –

HUGEHurricaneFlorenceDamageEstimatesPlusManufacturedHousingIndustryUpdates

CNBC reports that property damage from Hurricane Florence is estimated at $17 billion to $22 billion, and that forecast could be conservative, depending on further flooding, according to Moody’s Analytics.

Economists so far see a minimal impact to growth from the hurricane, which Moody’s sees shaving 0.2 percentage points from third-quarter GDP.

That may explain why the markets have not reflected a major disruption as a result of the tragic results of Hurricane Florence.

But late last week, analytics and housing firm CoreLogic put their estimate at some $170 billion.  That’s a huge difference, obviously.

As has been previously noted, there are manufactured home communities, business, and residents who have been impacted by the storm.

Thousands of FEMA Manufactured Housing Units (MHU) have been pre-positioned.  Depending on how flooding plays out, thousands of more could be needed.

The bottom line for now is wait and see.  It could take days, perhaps a week or more, before all of the flooding and related damage plays out. See the related reports, linked below.

Today’s MH Market Spotlight Report –

TheyreCriminalsWhenItComesToTradeChinaUSBattlePlusMHMarketUpdatesDailyBusinessNewMHProNews

President Donald J. Trump has been making the case for years that the U.S.’ leadership has engaged in terrible trade deals going back several decades.  For example, he blasted the Clinton era for NAFTA.  He’s said that the WTO structure and China’s place within it is flawed. He dumped President Obama’s deal on Pacific-Asian trade.

 Why?

 The short answer is that it cost the U.S. good manufacturing jobs.  Former President Barack Obama said on the campaign trail in support of Secretary Hillary Clinton that 2 percent GDP was the new normal.  Mr. Obama said that Donald Trump didn’t have “a magic wand” that he could wave to “get better trade deals.”

Both GOP and Democratic presidents going back to the Clinton era have said that China has cheated on trade, but no one has seriously taken China on, until now.

The panel discussion below was prior to the closing bell, so it didn’t reflect the fact that most markets had actually gained slightly by the end of the day, following an initial drop when the next round of tariffs were announced.

It is obvious that even these Fox Business talking heads are not all on board with President Trump’s trade strategies.  In fact, some question that there is a strategy. 

That said, the video is keen on several levels. One is the headline quote from Charlie Gasparino. But more important are some of the nuanced comments floated during the discussion.

Among them is that the U.S. can benefit from these tactics in more than one way. 

·        Better trade deals can emerge, and the EU, Mexico and other nations have signaled that they are ready to make more favorable deals with the U.S.

·        If the tariffs fail to create a new deal, some producers will shift manufacturing to the U.S.

In short, either way, the Trump Administration can win mid-to-long term for American businesses, investors and workers.  The alternative is more of the same experienced for the last 2 plus decades.  For national security reasons alone, it was inconceivable not to defend American industrial capacity, especially in areas like steel, aluminum and energy production.

It’s one of several tough, gutsy, but debatably correct strategies that the 45th president has undertaken.

Portions of this evenings report are from CNBC, which also provided a reasonably balanced look at what Democrats and Republicans are saying about the second round of tax cuts and reform bill, which was passed out of committee today.

The National Federation of Independent Business (NFIB) – which is 325,000 members strong, and which reports including hundreds of manufactured housing member-companies – supports the measure.

Among the highlights:

  • The bill was passed by the House Ways and Means Committee, and now cleared for a floor vote in the House would lock in already-passed tax changes affecting individuals, including lower rates and a variety of rules affecting what taxpayers can deduct.
  • A separate measure focuses on expanding the use of retirement and 529 education savings accounts, including the elimination of the 70½ age limit for contributions to individual retirement accounts.
  • The legislation also creates Universal Savings Accounts, which would be similar to Roth IRAs but without restrictions on how the withdrawals could be used.

The report that follows fails to mention that under Democratic President John F. Kennedy, and GOP President Ronald Reagan, tax cuts resulted in a short term revenue dip, followed by a surge in federal tax revenues. The reason, per economic experts, is because lower taxes spur investment, which spurs growth and eventually results in more taxes.

POTUS Trump: Everyone in Hurricane Florence Path Should “Get Out,” Plus MH Market Updates

September 11th, 2018 No comments

CNNmoney9.11.2018ManufacturedHomeStocksMarketsReportsMHProNewsThe climate is always changing.  So if you hear someone blame Hurricane Florence on ‘climate change,’ ask them to consider this. One forecaster reminded his audience that ‘That this could be the worst storm in 60 years’ to hit that part of the Atlantic coast. What that means is that some 60 years ago, a similarly severe storm, long before contemporary talk of ‘climate change,’ occurred. That said, unless we have a miraculous turn of dissipation of the advancing storm, there is strong consensus that this will hit the Eastern U.S. Construction supply related and manufactured home producer stocks are rising, insurance stocks are falling, ahead of what could be a storm that devastates thousands of housing units.  That will be our focus again this evening.

Today’s MH Market Spotlight Report –

POTUSTrumpEveryoneInHurricaneFlorencePathShouldGetOutPlusMHMarketUpdatesMHProNews

Don’t be surprised if the aptly named “hurricane sale” event being held by Legacy Housing in Eatonton GA is even better attended than reports to the Daily Business News on MHProNews have already indicated that it would be.

NEW-LEGACY-newhomesZeroDownSep12-13

LegacyHousingMapGoogleDailyBusinessNewsMHProNews

Potential landfall is hundreds of miles away from where the event will be held, based upon the most recent reports.

The President of the United States (POTUS) Donald J. Trump is urging those in the possible path of the storm to follow local officials’ warnings and “Get out.”

 

One estimate on AM 1430 radio said that some 750,000 residential housing units are in the storms potential path.  With a current Category 4 status, plus heavy rains expected, the devastation could be widespread.

That in turn will create demand for emergency housing, replacement homes, and rebuilding efforts.

Per CNBC:

Speaking of the government’s preparations for Florence, Trump said his administration is “sparing no expense. We are ready. We are as ready as anyone as ever been.” He added: “This is going to be a very large one … It’s tremendously big and tremendously wet. Tremendous amounts of water.”

Seated in the Oval Office, Trump surveyed poster charts of potential hurricane trajectories with Kirstjen Nielsen, the Secretary of Homeland Security, and Brock Long, the administrator of the Federal Emergency Management Agency.

Earlier in the day, Trump told reporters at Andrews Air Force Base that his administration is “absolutely, totally prepared” for the hurricane.

“We’re ready. FEMA is ready. Everybody is ready,” Trump said. “We have everybody standing by. We hope for the best,” he said. “There’s a chance it could be a very bad one, as you’ve probably heard … but we are absolutely, totally prepared.”

Speaking on a conference call with reporters Tuesday, officials from both FEMA and the American Red Cross predicted that electrical power and roads could be out for weeks in communities hit hard by Hurricane Florence.

“This is not a storm that on day three the roads are gonna be back and trees will be back green and power will be back on,” said Jeff Byrd, associate administrator for the Office of Response and Recovery at FEMA. Florence, he said, “is going to definitely knock out power days into weeks.””

The Daily Business News will continue to monitor the storm’s approach, and if it occurs, the aftermath.

Retailers and communities should think ahead, and consider the surge in orders that routinely hits factories, as it did last year when FEMA and other orders poured in, setting delivery dates months into the future.

EvacuationsOrderedAsHurricaneFlorenceAdvancesNOAADailyBusinessNewsMarketReport

Hurricane Florence and Manufactured Housing Markets

Should Florence strike the east coast in the area some project, and serious destruction occurs, it could result in another surge of orders from FEMA to HUD Code manufacturers.

Plus, building materials and demand for labor would spike in the wake of a new disaster.

Insurers, communities, retailers, home owners, and others in involved in the industry could be impacted. So here’s an update from CNBC and AP on the approaching storm.

1 million residents ordered to leave South Carolina coast as Hurricane Florence strengthens

  • Forecasters say Hurricane Florence has strengthened to a potentially catastrophic Category 4 storm as it closes in on North and South Carolina.
  • Forecasters said unusually warm ocean currents off the coast could super-charge it into “a large and extremely dangerous hurricane.”
  • The first impacts were already being seen on North Carolina’s barrier islands Monday as dangerous rip currents and seawater flowed over the state highway.
  • South Carolina Governor Henry McMaster announced on Monday an evacuation order for the state’s entire coastline, in effect starting Tuesday at noon.
